Dear J Haplogroup Project members,
Thank you for your participation in our project. Because of your contributions, the project has grown to the point where it has become too large to manage effectively.  We've realized that the interests of the individual member will be best served in J1 and J2 projects partnering with even more terminal projects. The J project administrators will automatically add members to the appropriate J subclade project as test results dictate. This project is only for those J kit owners who are willing to be added to the appropriate subclade projects.

Y-DNA_J-M304 MapJuly-September 2013: J1 transition done.
Since August 2013: J2 transition is in preparation, and J2 members groups are notified when research will be migrated.
The J Haplogroup Project will remain in place for some time, though without research on J1 and other terminal groups. If you have any questions, please contact us.
